Whitehawk radio turns on by it self

I have no issues with my new whitehawk until a couple days ago. I was outside and heard music coming from the trailer. No one has been in the trailer and the radio was on. I turned it off and went about my work. Later I walked by the TT and it was on again. It keeps doing this over the last few days. I had to turn turn the volume down so I dont hear it (hooked up to shore power) I checked to make sure the alarm was not on. I will remove the unit this weekend and check for loose connections. Anyone have this happen that can make some suggestions. Thanks

I wasn't aware that ghosts came with the white hawk. Hope I don't get one with mine when I pick it up next week.
Also make sure there is nothing in contact with the remote control for the unit.

My in-laws have a Sunline trailer. I don't know the brand of the unit, but the radio turns on whenever their TV or DVD player remote is used. A radio unit remote never came with their used trailer. I finally put a piece of black tape over the radio IR remote sensor. Problem solved.

I can bounce my Samsung remote off walls and still get the TV in our bedroom to respond. Maybe your neighbors are using their TV and turning on your radio?

Is it in the radio programing, like an alarm clock? It may be set to come on at a certain time each day.

Our radio (Jensen) did the same thing. Turns out it was defective. Ours would turn itself on at random times but wanted to play something in the USB jack even tho it was empty. After a couple of outings (and getting up several times a night to turn it off) I talked w/ Jayco and explained how I didn't want to drag the TT 30-ish miles to a dealer and drive a total of 4 round trips for a simple problem. They sent a replacement directly to me and paid to ship the old one back (our TT was still in warranty). Easy swap!

I would make sure that the radio alarm setting is not turned on.

is the RF sensor on the Jensen radios easly spotted to cover with tape? Mine started jumping radio channels each time I press my tv remote.
